Wollemi Pine

$250.00

The Wollemi Pine or Dinosaur Tree is one of the worlds oldest and rarest surviving trees, it was known only from 90 million year old fossils until its rediscovery  in 1994 by David Noble in the Wollemi National Park. It is a member of the Araucariaceae family which include the Kauri Pine, Hoop Pine and the Bunya Pine.  The Wollemi is unique from the other pines in many ways, including its coppicing habit and the beautiful ferny appearance of the foliage.  The intriguing chocolate coloured bark takes on a bubbly texture as the tree matures.  Even more strange are the wax coatings which appear in the winter to protect the new growing tips, these are called the polar caps and are yet another unique feature of this amazing native Australian tree.Trees are surprising hardy and can withstand temperatures down to -5 degrees Celsius as well as up to 45 degrees.  This makes them a very versatile tree that can be grown in a variety of situations.  They  prefer slightly acidic soil with a PH of 5.5 to 6 which needs to be well drained. Photos By J.Plaza

Lychee - Salathiel

$46.95 ($46.95-$79.00 choose a size)

Tree has an open dome shape with excellent quality fruit. Well suited to subtropical conditions. Beautiful coloured fruit with very small seed. Needs protection from wind when young.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$39.00 ($23.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree but if some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.
